Beef and Snow Peas is so easy to make and is one dinner recipe the whole family will love!
Amy from My Name is Snickerdoodle here! I really love the holiday season! And if I’m being honest, one of the reasons is because of all the delicious food! We all have our traditions whether new or old. One of my family traditions is on the second weekend of the month we drive around our town to the close by neighborhoods and check out everyone’s Christmas lights. We then come home, watch A Christmas Story and have Chinese food (because that’s what they end up eating for their Christmas feast).
Sometimes we order take out, but mostly I will whip up something really quick and yummy! My kids love this Beef and Snow Peas dish. It truly comes together in no time and makes for perfect leftovers…if there is any left after dinner!
I’ve also made this recipe with broccoli and it tastes equally as great! Just choose a vegetable your family will eat.
